My physician did a lap chole, but while she was attempting to gain entrance to the patient's abdomen she kept running accross wire sutures left over from an op done in the 1060's. These all had to be removed before she could proceed. Is this seperately billable? I was looking at either 15851 (remove sutures put in by another physician) or maybe 20680 (removal of deep implant e.g. buried wire) but that's an ortho code. Does anyone know if this is seperately reimburseable?
